Venom versus Non-Venom

I had an interesting conversation with my brother last week about the general tenor of posts to Intellectual Poison. He mentioned the ratio of venom to non-venom and that he felt the venom was pulling out and leading the non-venom posts.

So, for the next week or so, I will try to add a notation to posts at the end, the scale will be simple, +1 for non-venom, 0 for evenly venomous and non-venomous and -1 for venom posts. If his theory bears out then I will end up with a negative balance at the end of the experiment.

Should be interesting to see what the number looks like at the end of the week.
